"How to" Tools and Techniques


What is SAP SuccessFactors?   

SAP SuccessFactors is a fully integrated HR information system, including job application software application designed to provide job seekers with a modern, user-friendly tool for applying to the Toronto Transit Commission’s employment opportunities.

Why is the Toronto Transit Commission upgrading to this new system?   

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is continuously improving its services and being responsive to those individuals who want improved on-line functionality. The new SuccessFactors system does this with features such as email notifications of new postings, and email acknowledgements of received applications & résumés.

The TTC needs to attract and retain a skilled, high performing and diverse workforce. This new e-service recruitment tool will help to achieve that goal. The TTC needs to stay competitive in the labour market by using advanced recruitment technologies.

Viewing & Applying:

Do I need to register and set up a user profile if I want to view the current job opportunities?   

In order to view the job opportunities, all you need is a computer and internet access. If you want to apply, you will need to set up a profile and apply for the job you are interested in.

Do I need to register and set up a user profile if I want to apply to any current job opportunity using SuccessFactors?   

Yes. Applicants applying online using SuccessFactors are required to create their personal and confidential user identification, password and user profile. However, you only have to register once, and from that point on, you only have to login to apply.

If I registered and created a profile, do I need to log in to view new job opportunities?   

External postings are displayed on the site and do not require you to login. You will have to login if you wish to apply.

“How to” tools and techniques:

How can I submit a cover letter along with my résumé?   

Only one document can be uploaded with your application.  Applicants are encouraged to cut and paste both a cover letter and a résumé into one file, which can then be uploaded and submitted with your job application.

What is the best file format to submit my résumé?   

You upload/submit your cover letter and résumé to SuccessFactors. We prefer PDF or Microsoft Word, so that your application profile will be correctly pre-populated into the fields.

If you do not want to upload your résumé, you can type, or copy and paste your cover letter and résumé into the text boxes provided.

Note that functionality also exists to download from your LinkedIn profile, please click the Apply Using LinkedIn button. Please ensure to also attach your résumé.

How do I know if my application has been received?   

You will receive an "on-screen" confirmation that you have applied and you will receive a confirmation via email acknowledging receipt of your application.

You can also navigate to the Job Management screen, which displays all jobs you have applied for.

I am an external candidate / applicant. Can I submit my résumé/application by fax/mail?   

No you cannot. All applicants can only apply online. Accommodation is available for applicants with disabilities throughout the recruitment process. Please contact Human Resource- Employment Services at 416-393-4570.
